Bath and Body Works hand sanitizer is non toxic when used on skin and is safe to use and meets all the FDA requirements.

Getting a bit of hand sanitizer into your mouth is not harmful although you should not actually ingest it.

The Babyganics hand sanitizer is non toxic and free of fragrance, and free of alcohol and is non allergenic and safe for babies, toddlers and the whole family to use.

Babyganics is gluten free and free of Nickel, Lanolin, Paraben, Topical Antibiotic, MCI/MI, Propylene Glycol, Dye, and SLS.

Babyganics does not have phthalates as babyganics products are made without phthalates, parabens and artificial fragrance.

Babyganics does not have oxybenzone.

The babyganics sunscreens are made without oxybenzone and octinoxate.

Adults can use all Babyganics products including the Babyganics sunscreen.

Babyganics is marketed for babies but adults can also use their products.

Babyganics sunscreen is not toxic although it does contain octinoxate and octisalate.

The chemicals have had no negative effects on children or babies.

The ingredient in sunscreen that is bad for babies is titanium dioxide and zinc oxide which should ideally be avoided in sunscreen that is used for babies.

The sunscreens that are safe for babies include.

Aveeno Baby Continuous Protection Sensitive Skin Sunscreen Stick.
Neutrogena Pure & Free Baby Sunscreen.
Babo Botanicals Sheer Zinc Sunscreen.
Aveeno Baby Continuous Protection Sensitive Skin Zinc Oxide Sunscreen.
Alba Botanica Tropical Fruit Kids Sunscreen.

Babyganics Sunscreen.

Babyganics sunscreen is waterproof and water resistant for up to 80 minutes.

Babyganics sunscreen is formulated with zinc oxide, titanium dioxide and octisalate.

Babies can wear sunscreen once they are at least 6 months of age or older.

Babies under 6 months of age should be kept out of direct sunlight as much as possible.

You cannot and should not put hand sanitizer on your baby's hands as it can dry out their skin and also lead to alcohol poisoning as the hand sanitizer gets absorbed into the baby's skin.

Hand sanitizer is not recommended for kids under 3 years of age.

You can start bathing your newborn 24 hours after the birth of the newborn.

Since newborns don't get all that dirty you can bathe the newborn 2 to 3 times per week which is good enough.

If the room is a little cool then yes you should put a hat on your baby after a bath.

However if the room is warm enough then there's no need to put a hat on a baby after bathing them.

To keep the baby warm during the bath you can pour warm water over his or her body throughout the bath.

Some research suggests that using slightly more water — enough to cover a baby's shoulders — can be calming and help reduce heat loss.

With any amount of water, be sure to hold your baby securely during the bath.

You don't need a baby bath to give the baby a bath.

However having a baby bath makes it easier and safer for you to give your baby a bath.

You can also give your baby a bath in the kitchen sink or sit down in the bathtub yourself and hold the baby while you bathe them.

But a baby bath is a good thing to have.

Most babies will cry a little bit or even cry the whole time when the water is too hot or too cold.

Bath water that is too hot for the baby can easily scald or burn a baby's sensitive skin.

The infant's skin should not be red during or following the bath.

After the umbilical cord falls off the baby and the baby button heals you can give the newborn a bath then.

The stump of the umbilical cord should naturally fall off within about 2 weeks after the baby is born.

Then ideally you should wait a week after then to bathe the baby.

Until then a sponge bath for your newborn is perfectly fine and all the baby really needs.

Only give your newborn sponge baths until the stump of the umbilical cord falls off, which usually happens by about one or two weeks of age.

If it remains beyond that time, there may be other issues at play.

Once the umbilical cord has fallen off and the belly button has healed, you can give your baby her first real bath.

Aim for an every-other-day bath; a daily bath is more apt to dry your baby's delicate skin.

After the umbilical cord falls off.

Wipe away any remaining secretions with a dampened washcloth and pat dry.

Stick to sponge baths for a couple of days longer and then let your baby indulge in a tub.
